with kid rock. the last of the polls are rolling in and 538's nate silver says the national polls and local polls are starting to align. they show a slight lead for the president. he's still got a considerable electoral college lead. if we take a look at the last pew poll released over the weekend, the final estimate of the national popular vote, 50% to 47% in favor of the president. the a. p. reporting about 30 million people in 34 states in washington, d.c. have already cast their votes either in person or by mail. nothing gets counted until tomorrow. many states are releasing information, however about party affiliation and while the president does have a lead in several key battleground states, it is not as large of a lead as it was four years ago. the g.o.p. is up in colorado. while the democrats now lead in florida, iowa, nevada and north carolina. we're back with more steph after the break. stay with us.

[ applause ] >> stephanie: oh, my god. talk about two sets of facts. have you noticed last week, the increasing number of right wing callers that want to talk about
6:14am
benghazi. >> yeah. exactly. >> stephanie: i know when i hear rush limbaugh start to talk about it last week, fox news is about to come out with this report, ladies and gentlemen. complete [ bleep ] even when you heard it, you're like really? the president had a video feed and he watched two americans die and he refused any -- >> of course. as do you. >> stephanie: that seems like that would be plausible. >> to a moron who listens to rush limbaugh. >> up until then, their story was he was at an event in las vegas. did he have the video feed in his teleprompter? >> stephanie: that's what reagan did the aof day after the bombing of the in -- in beirut. so last-minute desperation. the c.i.a. and the pentagon -- first of all they're supposed to keep things secret that are happening over there. they've had to take this unprecedented step because it is completely false report on fox
6:15am
news right before the election. it is just -- it is strange creditility even if you hate the president. they were told to stand down and not help the american -- really? >> watch them die. >> if i was the pentagon, i would pull fox news' press pass for spreading crap like this. >> stephanie: exactly. so we have a fancy economist on the white house counsel of economic -- council of economic advisers. why the job numbers are better than you think. why they were revised upward. 15 minutes after the hour. kids in the meantime, carbonite by the way just talked to sexy liberal tour director, roland. >> how is he by the way? >> stephanie: he is fine. it was not storm damage. the people upstairs left their bathtub on when the blackout happened so roland's -- my whole point of the story is carbonite. >> were they -- >> stephanie: he has every sexy liberal thing in his computer and it was raining in his apartment not because of the storm. >> the people above him were filling their bathtub as they
6:16am
tell you to do for a fresh water supply and they forgot to turn it off. >> stephanie: going to collapse water in the living room. he has carbonite. that's an important point. all i cared about is what about all of the sexy liberal stuff. carbonite, you connect it -- any time you're connected to the internet, it is automatically there. you connect it once. every time you're connected to the internet it works automatically and continually there in the background. unlimited back-up space for one computer. $59 for the entire year. it includes remote access to the backed up files from any computer tablet or smart phone. >> that's my favorite part. >> stephanie: when roland had to rough it at the luxury hotel i still needed information about sexy liberal. thank god he had carbonite. type in my offer code, stephanie for a free trial no credit card required plus two free bonus months. the offer code is stephanie.

6:21am
that sounds fancy. good morning ronnie. >> good morning. thanks for having me. >> stephanie: thanks for coming on. because i'm a geek, i was going through the jobs numbers over the weekend. [ laughter ] that's what i do. you know, it was interesting piece in the "l.a. times," job report arouses new optimism. if you delve into it, it is better than what we thought. remember when the right wing was screaming these were cooked. you wait and see they will be revised downward. what happened, ronnie? >> they were revised upward, stephanie. i'm a geek just like you. >> stephanie: thank you. >> i've been looking in the jobs numbers. 171,000 jobs. fantastic. last month october they actually revised numbers in september and going back so things are look better now than we even thought they were. the unemployment rate picked up only because more people entered the work force looking for work. it is a signal of optimism. things are going in the right direction. i expect them to continue after the election, president obama's re-elected. >> stephanie: here is the part that irks me.
6:22am
whoever wins tuesday could enjoy increased economic momentum. god forbid, that's mitt romney. look what i did. just like he was for the auto bailout. >> you make a good point. one of the reasons it is so important is depending on who wins, they're going to claim a mandate for their ideas. if romney were to win and because of the policies we've put in place, they would claim vindication for supply-side economics and we know that's not the case. another reason if you needed one more to vote the ideas have been working. the economy is moving in the right direction. we can't let the wrong folks get the credit for where the economy is going. >> stephanie: i'm delving into the numbers. job numbers expanded across a broad range of industries. that's the other thing you look for. including the long-depressed construction sector. they make the point which sounds in bad timing but it says that part of the economy should get a further lift in the next couple of months from rebuild unfortunately from the
6:23am
devastating storm. go ahead. >> sorry stephanie. two things. one is obviously our hearts and prayers are with the folks who suffered. after the disasters, it is often true there is a boom in construction as people are rebuilding. before when the report came out employment and construction edged up in specially trades by about 17,000 jobs. that's just a sign i think that we're moving into recovery in the housing market as well. you've seen some positive signs in the housing area. that's been one of the lagging indicators we've been waiting for. that's good news on the construction front as well. >> stephanie: speaking, i was mentioning the auto rescue, the other unfortunate but they're saying there is also going to be a huge jump because so many people's cars have been demolished on the east coast as well. like i say that's not a good reason but you're right. construction, auto, a lot of the industries are already doing so much better will probably continue right? >> yes. you think about the auto bailout in particular. that was a tough call. the president's made a lot of
6:24am
tough calls in the last four years. generally clear where the politics would line up. he made the call to save the american auto industry and now they're back. you look back at those things. that's why i'm almost more excited to vote in 2012 than i was in '08 because we have this record to run on that we're proud of. it turned out to be the right call. >> stephanie: what you just said, i've said that over and over. it is amazing to me and i think because we become so partisan this president's record can be spun as anything but a huge success. most normal economists he literally did pull us from the brink of a great recession. not just -- like you say, you look at the numbers. you look at any graph right? this is absolutely the right direction. right. you don't even need to be an economist, stephanie. you can look at a graph. i totally agree. we were facing the worst economic downturn since the great depression. it bears repeating you know. and the president you know, really took bold action from the very beginning with a stimulus act which worked.
6:25am
independent economists concur that three million jobs create or save. that's what got us on the road to recovery. that's where he started to talk about healthcare, lilly ledbetter, dodd frank and all of the other things that happened over the last four years. i think when we look at this record in historical context people will recognize how much was done over the last four years and the crisis we averted with some of the steps. >> stephanie: absolutely. jonathan had a piece. the most important data is employment report wasn't the top line 171,000 new jobs. pay closer attention to the revisions from august and september. most notably august. they're much closer to the mark. for instance, president obama faced brutal headlines when the august job report estimated the economy created 96,000 jobs. in september, it was revised up to 142. today it was revised to 192. the labor market in the summer was quite strong even though the initial survey suggested otherwise. he makes an interesting point. it didn't do obama any favors but the headlines seem to have no impact, probably because the
6:26am
real labor market that real people work in and seek work in felt dirtier than the news story suggested. >> yeah. i think that he makes a good point. sometimes the numbers that show up on a headline is a snapshot of one month. they're revised. we look at the numbers. don't read too much into one month's number good or bad. you have to look at them over the long-term to average a bunch of months together and account for the revisions which can go upward. i think he's right. it probably didn't match what people were seeing in their own communities. people's friends were getting back to work. folks didn't relate to the headlines during the summer and now we're seeing why. >> stephanie: well ronnie, it is interesting we talk about literally, in such a partisan environment, two sets of facts yet literally have heard folks pull numbers out of thin air the real number is closer to 47%. what?
6:27am
that's the thing. there's only so much you can argue about hard numbers right? >> right. it is a great thing. we're entitled to our own opinions but not our own facts. best thing you can do is have the facts at your disposal. tell the story about how we created over five million new jobs. talk about the downward trend in unemployment and the gdp numbers. if you can do a google searching of all of these things from the bureau of labor statistics and other sources we can give. you'll be able to have the numbers at your disposal. >> stephanie: here is the one we just mentioned last week. how many times has mitt romney repeated there's 23 million americans out of work. it is not even so much him you about the mainstream media should say well, the actual number is 12. but anyway, that was mitt romney. you can't just double a number. and say that's true. >> especially with the big consequences in this election. we do have some fact checkers out there. even though their campaign said
6:28am
they wouldn't be dictated, people are paying attention to them. the second thing is when i went out to do my own early voting here in north carolina, such enthusiasm long lines people were excited about getting the chance to vote. people know when they're being spun and people know when the statistics are being made up. for folks feeling despair when they see the false claims and bad statistics, you need to fight back with the truth. in the end, people will get the message. that's already happening. >> stephanie: any truth to the rumor that the job numbers are entirely fact checkers for mitt romney? >> we'll have to look into that one. >> stephanie: ronnie chatterji of the white house economic council. >> thank you stephanie. >> stephanie: tomorrow. >> i didn't want to send people to the polls today. >> stephanie: i meant tomorrow. some people can vote early. >> stephanie miller said -- >> stephanie: shush. right back with rude pundit.
6:29am

6:30am
[ forsythe ] we don't just come up here for the view up in alaska. it's the cleanest, clearest water. we find the best sweetest crab for red lobster that we can find. [ male announcer ] hurry in to red lobster's crabfest! the only time of year you can savor 5 succulent crab entrees all under 20 dollars. like a half-pound of tender snow crab paired with savory grilled shrimp, just 12.99. or our hearty crab and roasted garlic seafood bake. [ forsythe ] if i wouldn't put it on my table at home, i wouldn't bring it in. my name's jon forsythe and i sea food differently.
6:31am
but when joint pain and stiffness from psoriatic arthritis hit even the smallest things became difficult. i finally understood what serious joint pain is like. i talked to my rheumatologist and he prescribed enbrel. enbrel can help relieve pain, stiffness, and stop joint damage. because enbrel, etanercept suppresses your immune system, it may lower your ability to fight infections. serious, sometimes fatal events including infections tuberculosis
6:32am
lymphoma, other cancers, and nervous system and blood disorders have occurred. before starting enbrel your doctor should test you for tuberculosis and discuss whether you've been to a region where certain fungal infections are common. don't start enbrel if you have an infection like the flu. tell your doctor if you're prone to infections, have cuts or sores have had hepatitis b have been treated for heart failure, or if, while on enbrel, you experience persistent fever, bruising, bleeding, or paleness. [ phil ] get back to the things that matter most. ask your rheumatologist if enbrel is right for you. [ doctor ] enbrel, the number one biologic medicine prescribed by rheumatologists.

[ laughter ] >> stephanie: so great stuff as usual. i love the -- here's a few fun
6:35am
quotes you can use on your right wing uncle. it never hurts to look backward in order to move forward. there's so much. you focus on governor of massachusetts. i heard governor romney describe his record. his record was that he raised taxes by $730 million. he called hem -- them fees. he's not good on conservative issues. >> no. when mccain was launching into him -- you could find the same thing from gingrich launching into him this election. but if there's one thing that you can say to conservatives is go back to 2008 -- 2007 and you'll find that doubt there. that should keep you away from the polls. you should just stay home. stay home. >> stephanie: speaking of mccain, let's leave you -- the bitterest elf ever to run for president. who set up romney in 2008. ronald reagan would not approve of someone who changes their positions depending on what the year is. >> if zombie reagan could rise
6:36am
from the grave -- >> well, here you go again. >> yeah. he would leave that brain behind because it is slopped around too much. >> stephanie: you also say to tell the right wing uncle romney's job creation was the third worst in the country leaving the people with a huge debt because of the big government-mandated healthcare system. >> the funny thing is that romney and back before obama you know, created the eastel version of romney -- the evil version of romney's healthcare plan, he himself was talking about how great it was and how the nation should consider embracing it. because it was so splendiferous. >> stephanie: i love he's trying to sell bipartisanship. what was it? like 700 vetoes were overridden by the massachusetts -- what kind of bipartisanship is that? >> right. that's the thing. he was in a position where either he went along with what
6:37am
democrats wanted or it was just -- he would never have his name on anything. >> while the rest of the country was losing 67% of manufacturing jobs -- 7% of manufacturing jobs 14% of the jobs left massachusetts. >> thank you john mccain. and we don't know what percentage of that were just the ones that bain capital the companies they bought. >> stephanie: exactly. i have to say my personal favorite, we were saying i agree with the little crying girl sick of the election. the waning days of this exhausting campaign, the rude pundit couldn't hit -- hate his tv or internet more than if they were [ bleep ] by demons. the romney campaign has tossed on the bonfire. i would have thought that was going okay rude until i saw today's headline. it is not cold enough for that. >> now they're imprisoning
6:38am
people for him. that's what you're going to get is voter imprisonment camps. come on, glenn beck, why aren't you talking about that? >> some poor child. my daughter's frostbitten, can we leave? >> no! >> we won't let you out of this barricade you voluntarily came to. >> stephanie: mitt in an effort to appear human creates the little match girl. >> that's the thing. it is like he's threatening your children's fingers if you don't vote for him. how many fingers will it cost your child for you to pull the switch for me? >> how much did you spend on violin lessons? >> stephanie: and your final post which of course, i'm preemptively hearing my mother in my head go oh, dear. a healthy end to the filthy campaign of a filthy liar. [ applause ] i just asked this question a few minutes ago, rude. you say we have no time to
6:39am
entertain whether it will work. we have no patience for a press unlogical to call a lie a lie. it seems as if the campaign of mitt romney is a mad sociologist experiment in seeing how many people will believe -- how many lies people will believe. romney was revealed to be the robot we suspected him. the scientist controlling the levers. they were trying to gauge how racist and stupid the nation is. >> we're going to discover that we're 47% racist and stupid. it is the reverse 47% from -- it was the 47% that will actually punch the button for romney. up here, we'll be going old-fashioned. scrawling xs on the paper. >> stephanie: yikes. >> do you have electricity where you are? >> i just got it back saturday. but i just -- i just drove through hoboken this morning. >> i'm sorry. >> that's okay. it is a thing you have to do every now and then. but truly right now, all
6:40am

6:41am
mittens? you're losing wisconsin. you picked the budget munster. >> the thing is once jeb bush and chris christie decided they weren't running that meant that the smart narcissists in the g.o.p. decided yeah, we're -- nobody is going to beat obama. it was left to the dumb narcissists to run for president and so the dumbest richest narcissist of them all is the one that got nominated and you know what? i don't want him just to lose. i want him to be disgraced. >> stephanie: this piece this is exactly what i was saying is you say there is something so deeply galling and so disturbing in how romney lies, the campaign began in a lie that he was dissing job creators and ends with a lie that they're moving jobs to china because obama failed them. a lie so ludicrous the ceo of chrysler had to refute it. romney has refuted it.
6:42am
i love -- you know, put to rest this phrase flip-flop. you say we use the cute phrase flip-flop to describe romney's change in positions. they're not mere change in position. they're lies. we could ask if romney was lying in the past. intensely conservative or now when he's somewhat more moderate again. except for abortion, romney refuses to admit he's changed his position. >> yeah. everyone's just like oh, that's just mitt. that's what you get when you get romney. he's just going to shift around in his positions like a piece of overboiled spaghetti in the wind. >> stephanie: elton john, i hear him running to a piano now. >> stephanie: it reminds me of the old -- you know, are you lying now or were you lying then? what movie he is that from? >> were you lying then? are you lying now? or are you not in fact a chronic and habitual liar! >> stephanie: that always takes me by surprise.

♪ jacki's news ♪ >> stephanie: good morning jacki schechner. >> good morning. >> stephanie: all right. we need an entire team to shoot down one lie after another. you mention this last week. i had time to read the whole thing that you sent me. romney has been on the campaign trail saying the reason a lot of people can't get doctors now is because -- for the president's medicare cuts. >> yes. >> stephanie: a lot of doctors call office after office. we're not taking anymore medicare patients. explain, please. >> it has nothing to do with the affordable care act. >> stephanie: thank you. >> in fact, the affordable care act overs payments to primary care physicians at an increased rate because we're trying to incentivize more primary care physicians. so it actually has nothing to do with it. it has to do with the dock fix and it has been a problem since 1997. >> stephanie: right. this is from 2010. call it medicare's version of groundhog day.
6:53am
>> it is called the dock fix. you hear about it every few months or so. the idea is to figure out how to -- how to keep costs down within medicare and still pay doctors a reasonable rate and it is a problem that just keeps coming up over and over again. it is totally separate from the affordable care act. has nothing to do with it whatsoever. really doctors would like a long-term solution. it is something congress keeps coming up with a stop-gap measure. it is a really a congressional dysfunction. absolutely nothing to do with healthcare reform. >> stephanie: this is what i was telling you. you and i were talking -- it started with right wing e-mails. my mother can't get a doctor because of obama. because of beam care. they -- because of obamacare. romney started saying on it the campaign trail last week. there's no difference anymore. >> what they would like to do is scare people. so the best way to do it is to say something like you're not going to be able a get a doctor. there will be rationed care. we're taking all of this money out of medicare. that's not where the money's coming from.
6:54am
it is the savings from getting rid of waste fraud and abuse and slowing the rate of growth. we're not cutting payments to providers. we're not rationing care. and a good portion of the money that we're saving is going right back into medicare. it is all going back into healthcare overall. so it's not like you're stealing from medicare to give to healthcare reform which is some crazy mocked up government bureaucracy that they fabricated in their heads. it's all money that's being saved or being fiscally responsible. we're recycling the money back into the healthcare system a large portion of it is going back into medicare and another portion is going to help people pay for healthcare and afford health insurance which is something that he, as a nation, need because ultimately, we subsidize the cost if people don't have health insurance. >> stephanie: in fairness, jacki, the president was too business ordering the death of americans in benghazi. >> yeah, well. >> stephanie: on the video feed. >> i thought he was too busy

7:11am
the election. before unemployment went under 8% -- they switched to benghazi. you take the benghazi hysteria and you tie it into campaign hysteria and you tie it into the right wing media which is depicted obama as a socialist as a racist, as a marxist and they see -- they think he might win and it just drives this -- you know, benghazi is this right wing storm that's gaining -- you know strength over the oarves of an election. -- the oceans of an election. it is creating this cyclone effect. they call him a marxist. what can we call him now? a traitor? >> stephanie: yeah. eric, it is interesting. remember last cycle conspiracy was that they cooked the job numbers. they'll be revised downward. the numbers. the numbers have been revised upward.
7:12am
it turns out they were wrong. >> it just proves my point. >> stephanie: now on fox news, obama may have sacrificed americans as part of a political calculation to win re-election. it is reported as fact but obama made no decision to do anything to rescue americans in benghazi which allowed them -- worse obama watched the video in real time as they snuffed out american lives. he heard cries for help. in the words of karl rove, as you say, none of that is true. >> done. >> stephanie: the c.i.a. has taken an extraordinary step of refuting all of that because -- you know -- go ahead. >> if you read my twitter feed, ten times a day i'm told that obama watched those people die in real time and refused to send in any sort of help. this is the culmination of a four-year campaign to portray obama as this murderous traitor and this benghazi is a vehicle

7:33am
like overwhelmingly democrats are early voting, seems like a good sign for the president yeah? >> yeah. i mean -- i honestly feel better about it than i'm comfortable saying but i do think that -- i'm seeing that we do need to get folks out to vote and i'm surprised at the amount of young people that are towing this line of apathy and indifference. maybe it doesn't concern me. people really need to kind of appreciate -- i think some people including -- the younger generation of folks who don't really necessarily appreciate how special it is to be able to have your right to vote and to be able to make your vote count. remember in 2000, that came down to 537 votes in florida. so the popular vote does matter. having a referendum, making it -- taking a stand and showing how many of us stood up for yourself and whatever issue it is. it makes a big difference. certainly running around as much as i can to encourage people to
7:34am
vote early. just to make sure you vote. make sure you're counted. or you have nothing to complain about. >> stephanie: that's one of the story lines. the kids won't come out and vote like they did in 2008. what's your sense from being on the campaign trail so much? >> i think -- around college campuses, around kind of different -- there's different groups whether it is in school or urban areas that i think are getting out the vote. getting really incredible numbers of volunteers around the country. particularly for the president. but i do think that -- lower income communities, i think people do feel a little beaten down, particularly in battleground states, been bombarded with advertising and the robo calls and everything. i think that sometimes i think -- i am sensing especially when i was in ohio, running around trumbull county, warren, ohio cleveland, i got the sense -- because me and russell simmons, we got a bunch of -- we drove around to strip malls and shopping centers and walked in
7:35am
and said are you registered to vote? some people said yes, they were. some people hmmed and hawed. if you are prove it. get in the van let's go vote right now. we called people on it. i did feel like we had -- their responses were kind of like yeah i'm going to get around to it. i'm going to do some chores. >> stephanie: that's why it is great that you're out there. you're right. that's human nature. right. unless -- i think -- sometimes people -- even they're well-intentioned go oh, something came up. i think these lines for early voting are really encouraging though, aren't they? i've seen like four hours in some places like florida for people lining up to wait to early vote. >> florida is incredible. really incredible. especially how mindful they're being of them -- shutting down sunday voting. people may register to line up

beforehand. there was a big problem in florida yesterday because people came out because they found a way to vote. you can bring your absentee votes in in person and they had a four-hour window. they were also turned away after awhile and then due to -- they opened it back up. >> stephanie: i feel like a lot of the voter suppression stuff, jesse you've heard about in not just florida but ohio. just from my anecdotal evidence and callers, i feel like it is motivating people to vote more. people don't like the idea of losing their right to vote. >> getting the opposite effect. you want your right to vote? people come and take it away from you. when people are try thog obstruct you from voting or when somebody is lying to you the truth isn't good enough. they're trying to stop you from voting, there is a reason because they're scared of what you're going to do with that vote. so i think as i've been saying to people, no matter what your
7:37am
excuse is, no matter what the reason is that you're not voting you're fulfilling somebody else's plan by not voting. so use it or you lose it. it is literally the least you can do. we're hearing a lot of i don't know where, i don't know how. you simply go to vote.barack obama.com and the answers are there. what the early voting rules are. what state -- how long the board of elections are open, et cetera. this is the information age. you can find out anything you want at any time. go on -- >> stephanie: say that one more time. go to barack obama.com? >> vote.barack obama.com has all of the answers you need for how -- for when and where you can vote. where you can specifically vote in your area. whether there's early voting hours. what the hours are. where they're located. >> stephanie: we have a link -- we have a link of jesse on stephaniemiller.com. if you're listening, go to

7:58am
was authorized by the deputy mayor and the elections supervisor. they were letting people cast absentee ballots in person. some of the wait times have been clocked as much as seven hours down in florida. it's not alone as being a state racking up some voter irregularities.

done in congress for the sixth district in minnesota, it is not with her right? >> no, stephanie. the interesting thing about it is michele bachmann is the most prolific fund-raiser in the business. she's raised more money to attack -- over $22 million right now and going up. and yet she doesn't even get any kind of a nod from her own party when she gets back to congress. she definitely is on the outside -- she's out for herself and it is quite clear and i think the people on both sides of the aisle can sense that it's time for her to move on. >> stephanie: she has been denounced by john boehner by john mccain with this ridiculous muslim brotherhood infiltration of the state department nonsense. the important thing for our listeners and your constituents is this lack of respect undercuts her ability to pass bills, right? >> that's it, stephanie. let's just give her credit. let's say she really wanted to balance the budget, reduce the deficit and create jobs. let's say she wanted to do it
